i'm a little unsure of everything right now, and i cant help feeling restless.  graduation is this week and its all over with high school, finally.

summer vacation is around the corner. i'm totally stoked.

i leave uganda on the 16th of june, to the UK & France for the Earth Crisis dates. and then i'll be in NYC by late June.
i dont know what i'm doing. sure, i want to hang out for a good minute but then what when that gets played out? i'm so afraid of comitting to a certain place, and staying put.  lately, it feels like its so much easier to leave, i get better at it everytime.  i never thought that would be a problen in new york. maybe it isnt and i just think it is.

okay, fine. soon enough, the answers will unravel themselves. but one thing is sure, i'm not sticking around nyc for the winter.


lately, i've been hanging out a lot with a few genuine people making my last weeks here count for all its worth. most of all, i'm totally in LOVE. and at times, i just want to fucking scream so hard, because i have never felt so crazy before.  and its not even like i want to get married but shit, i know....stronger than you ever knew, stronger then i ever knew. so what comes next with me and you? i cant escape... i cant run as far, i cant run as fast, i cant get free of you. its utterly impossible.

and the craziest thing, is i knew it all along.

this week is going to be one the longest weeks ever, but thats okay. i'll take it all in day by day. because i know never again will i ever be exactly where i am now, 18 without a clue, evenings on my balcony, listening to jazz on sundays,  staying up all night on the phone, laughing about whatever with good friends...the thing is its all very unique and on to its own. i know that no where else where will i feel the way i feel here. and thats special.

and im ready for nostalgic and very new feelings back home, and anywhere. maybe indonesia, maybe costa rica or maybe capetown with my favorite person in the world.

life has been pretty sweet in the motherland, first and foremost  x-mas vacation is here! also been crashing x-mas partys (pictures with santa!), being larger than life, hanging out with some of the richest mofo's in uganda like the Prince which is fucking wild. umm, been playing lots of soccer at the country club with lots of good friends, clubbin on friday nights. international life of leisure what can i say.

i'm also really stoked about the rasberry sorbet i made last night, it was heavenly...about to make some vegan pancakes and french toast , some tofu scramble for brunch, and chill on the balcony with good friends. yeppp. lifes good here.

but i'm also really stoked because my braces are finally off, which is nice. what else is reallly nice is that i will be visiting nyc by next week, im keeping it on the low right this second until things are confirmed. i have kindof dieing grandparents in nebraska so we are going on a compassionate leave. which is awesome cause i didnt even know the next time i would be back home nor did imagine it so soon.

yess!

whats new?

i turned 18yrs on the 22nd of October, it was awesome i had fireworks dedicated to me. Fireworks because it was on the same day of Diwali festival of lights. So we ran around, freaking out because we right under the fireworks way too close for comfort. it was amazing though, i love fireworks. by the end of the night we all jumped into the pool with our underwear on. all in all a good 18th birthday.


last week was all about futbol it was great, the tournament called ISSEA went on in our school. ISSEA is basically every international school on eastern africa coming together to compete in volleyball, basketball and most importantly SOCCER, so the schools included Ethipoia, South Africa (Joburg), Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Uganda. last year it was Jo'Burg and Zimbabwe selected this year it was our home court Uganda. it was so much fun. I fucking love being international and meeting other kids in the international community. its pretty much the best thing ever.

I think about how when i graduate it will all be over, and thats very depressing. I don't ever want to stop traveling. but i'm fucking stoked be out of school next year and hella nervous. anyway, i think i'm going to work for the UN. that way i'll never stop being international.

so me, cassi, these kids Piers and Josiah are going to be silkscreening shirts. I'm way stoked cause i have lots of ideas. first design being a Unicorn tee particularly for xVx girls. i think we are going to call our clothing line "Old Friends". its gonnna be off da charts kidzz.

started basketball yesterday, it was fun. basketball ISSEA anyone?

balllinnnn like jim jonez

i'm about to turn 18. thats intense.

this weekend me and a bunch of kids are going up to northern Uganda to the district of Lira. to paint a memorial  with the ex-child soldiers who were affected by the Lord Resistance Army. Many of the child soldiers are missing ears, lips, fingers all from the LRA rebels. 
I'm stoked to do this trip up to Lira though,  I hear all about the LRA and the terrible things that are happening to people up North and it feels so distant even though its happening 6/7 hours away.  I dont know how i'm going to handle some of the awful truths, but its something i need to be exposed to. cassi and i will probably be taking a journalist there. and hopefully, my  fathers work is out there the same time as we are so we dont have to sleep in tough surroundings. i cant even imagine it, this trip is all to fucking real.


on a lighter note...
*I'm teaching a cooking class for the young ones doing only vegan meals, i start tomorrow...i'm stoked.
*Neil in Joburg asked me to contribute to his new  zine coming out, i've always wanted to do a split and who better then Neil. awesome.


and school is draining the fucking life out of me, i dont even know if i can do this IB shit anymore. everyone keeps telling me how priveleged i will be once i get the diploma. but working this hard for something my heart isnt really at, is real difficult. i wonder if its worth it.

i just wanna rock out. pretty much.

lovelovelove,
